ManeNights VS background 6 by Jowybean ManeNights VS background 6 by Jowybean
This was an exclusive I was selling at BUCK two weeks ago :phew:. I decided to share it online after the fad has died down. Its very much a fan made piece with the roles reversed :) for both the groups of characters we know and love dearlyit was a lot of fun to design the other nightmare 6 and put ghost mare in there ;) lol. This idea is nothing completely original because who has not thought of this concept in the fandom already. But now its been Jowybeanifed so enjoy. =D

The digital painting style is a little more looser then I would have liked it to be ^^; but overall it’s a colourful illustration.

Check out my FIM title card project…

Until next deviation LATERS :peace:

painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet 5

Epic FTW:woohoo: or Do Not want :rage: you choose :mwahaha:

Now this is something I hadn't seen before, and please remember that I don't get to say that often. When reviewing fanart, what you're doing is hearing variation after variation of the same song or melody. That's one of the problems with fanart, I can almost always say, "yeah, I've seen this before." This artists surprises me, though. This isn't the first time I've been surprised by his originality.

Now in the past I've commented on this artist's ability to give the right areas of his work an enormous amount of detail, but he sometimes comes up short on some potentially important areas. I believe this is that work I was looking for. The one where his style and detail really shine through, without drawbacks. The only thing I wish he had done a little differently is separate the ManeNights a little better. Making them all black and putting them against a dark background was a risky concept. You did a good job, it's just here's a leg behind a wing, here's a wing over one's flank. It's no real problem just my personal opinion.

As I stated before, your style really shines through on this one. I believe it is your best one yet. The ManeNights look awesome, the Background 6 look awesome, the background looks awesome. It's just an awesome piece.
And I don't say that often.

Very well done,
What do you think?

Interesting as well
HOLY FUCKING SHIT! Did someone made a fic of this? If so someone please link it to me!
This? This is awesome. Like, I want it on a shirt awesome, or possibly on the wall of my room (if I had any wall space left, that is...). And I think the best parts are the Nightmare 6 and the fact that Derpy is the only one not to have her element shaped like her cutie mark...but a muffin!!! Muffin power, oh yeah!!! Fluttershy
